Asabaâ€”THE Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG, zone six, Felix Ogbaudu, has declared that he had no regrets joining the police force after his university education in 1976.
Ogbaudu, who is retiring soon, said while speaking at a civic reception organized by the Isoko nationÂ in his honour at Owhe Grammar School, Otor-Owhe, Delta State, that â€œI never for once regretted being a policeman.â€
He thanked organizers of the reception which was chaired byÂ General Alexander Ogomudia (rtd) and commended Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan for personally honouring the event.
Eulogizing the AIG for his efficiency which catapulted him to the enviable height in the police, Uduaghan called on youths in the area to enlist in the police, army and other professional bodies in order to close the gap after the retirement of top Isoko officers currently serving.
The Governor also used the occasion to urge the State House of Assembly to consider the possibility of extending retirement pension to the first Isoko son to occupy political position as deputy premier in the First Republic, Pa James Otobo.
He pointed out that such gestures, when extended to the old politician, would go a long way to, not only boost his morale, but aid him financially too as a reward for diligence.
